I would like to start keeping track of my finances on my Leopard OSX machine.

I live in NZ, use Kiwibank, and have to deal in USD and NZD.

At the moment I won't be using it to keep track of my GST registered company, but I may want to do so in the near future.

Is anyone ALREADY using something in NZ that they like and would recommend. I know there is lots out there, a Google search away, but its your experiences I am looking for!

I am using Cha-Ching and have been for a while, works well and is very nicely featured. Also has an iPhone app for easy syncing and updating on the go. you can get it here: http://www.midnightapps.com/


I like the scheduling features and the easy access to online banking from within the application.  I Think you can link it directly to your bank account if you're with a bank that supports this although i'm not sure any in NZ do.  Still, cool feature if you decide to move country sometime :P

Cool, I have an iPod Touch as my round-the-house device, so that would be quite handy.

I tried MoneyWorks Cashbook (http://www.cognito.co.nz) which seemed ok but not being an accountant reverted back to Excel for my company accounts...

If you are looking for company accounting then you should look at Xero.

I'm using Money 2007 (and have been for a while) on Windows, but wanted to switch to something Leopard-native, has anyone ever successfully import from that into Cha-Ching or iBank?

I've never used the import/export features so I can't talk to that. But it looks like there are some known issues with the current version of Cha-Ching on that front and they'll be sorted in version 2.... http://midnightapps.com/community/comments.php?DiscussionID=303

I also recommend Moneyworks from www.cognito.co.nz/, they are based in NZ and are really good to deal with. For someone with little accounting knowledge, I found the software very easy to use and adapt to my non standard practices.

I use an American version of Quicken for Mac for my personal accounting,   not sure whether that is available in NZ.

For my company accounting,  I use Moneyworks and MYOB (I own & operate a bookkeeping & payroll service),  both Moneyworks Gold and MYOB AccountEdge v8 are native Mac applications and properly support multi-currency.

Moneyworks is not always the simplest program to use,  but I do like that is a New Zealand company,  it is extremely flexible, there is no limit to the number of company data files you can have, and there are NO ANNUAL support fees.

one word: moneywell



I feel evangelical about this software & the developer. I really have tried them all, and nothing came close to MSMoney99 until this.



I am a user of Moneyworks too (for business), but... it takes some getting used to the antiquated interface. This was 'designed' by accountants.

Although I am an moneyStrands user now, I still use Excel when I work with my budget. But it'd be pretty easy to forecast salary, investment income, and set short term and long term financial goals with online money management tools.
